Subsidy Removal: Osun govt assures workers of getting palliatives soon

Osun State government has assured workers in the state of getting their own share of the subsidy removal palliative soon.

Recall that the state government through Mallam Olawale Rasheed, who is the spokesperson to Governor Ademola Adeleke, had announced plans to cushion the effect of subsidy removal. Among the plans are provision of free transport scheme for workers across the state but since he mentioned it, nothing has been done for civil servant across the state.

When contacted on Tuesday, the Sate Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi said that Governor Adeleke will never use workers welfare to play politics which is the reason why he has been paying backlog of salaries owed by previous government.

He noted that there has been deliberations between the Labour Union and the state government for the upward review of salary structure and palliatives for workers to cushion the effect of removal of fuel subsidy.

We do not have any issue with the labour unions in Osun, there has been meetings between us every time to deliberate on the upward review of workers salary.

“We are awaiting the template of the Federal Government to know how the standard, we don’t want to cheat workers in the state, we are going to make the template public but pending that we are working in temporary template to cater for welfare of workers. Deliberations are ongoing”, he concluded.
